A pizza deliveryman was shot and killed Monday night as he was
searching for a customer's apartment in Richmond, police said.
At 8:58 p.m., police received a report of the shooting from a
resident in the 800 block of South 45th Street, Lt. Ron Berry
said. The female caller said that a man had been shot in front
of her home.
Responding officers found the victim at the reported location
and he was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Berry.
Preliminary reports indicate that the victim was attempting to
deliver a pizza to an apartment in the 900 block of South 45th
Street but could not locate the building. As he wandered the neighborhood
in search of his destination, unknown assailants approached him
and attempted to rob him, Berry said. The victim tried to run
away, but was shot twice from behind.
Police are investigating the shooting.
